FROM the VAULT: Big Star

In 1972, the group gave their first effort the ambitious title of #1 Record. It fully showcased the band's influences as well as the blossoming songwriting of both Bell and Chilton. “Thirteen” and “In the Street” were to become favourites but, despite the album's apparent hit power, it failed to make an impact.
